Markman's Raises Funds for Boys and Girls Clubs



Steve Markman recently presented a check for $2,750 to Bridget Jones, Director of Development & Corporate Events for Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley. The check was presented as a result of the recent Open the Vault Event Fundraiser held at Markman’s.

At the Open the Vault Event Fundraiser in September, Markman’s offered jewelry from its vault to customers at 20-70 percent off. Safe social distance protocols were observed during the annual fundraiser. A portion of the proceeds was donated to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley.

“We are extremely happy to make a donation to such a deserving organization like Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley for the third year in a row,” said Steve Markman. “Markman’s has had a long tradition of giving back to the community, and we wanted our Open the Vault Event to be a continuation of that spirit of charity.”

Markman’s flagship location is at 6932 Kingston Pike in Knoxville, with a second location outside Hamilton Place in Chattanooga.
